If you’re visiting this page, odds are, you’re going through a hard time right now, or have in the past. Change is inevitable, but it sure isn’t always easy or comfortable. As a therapist, I’m committed to holding space for you to learn, grow, heal, and process your experiences and emotions.
I believe that you are the expert of your own life and I will help you remember, identify, and build on your own inner strengths. Counseling is a collaborative process and we will work together to help you identify goals, decrease feelings of distress, and increase positive experiences and joy so that you can live a meaningful life and focus on the things that matter most to you.
My treatment approach
I use a holistic and eclectic approach to therapy that includes Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and EMDR to support you in meeting your goals by examining the connection between how you think, feel (emotionally and physically), behave, and interact with your surroundings.
I teach mindfulness, cognitive restructuring, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness which help achieve growth and healing.
I primarily support individual adults, though sometimes work with teens as well. I work with clients from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and family dynamics and structures. My practice is inclusive and LGBTQ affirming.
areas of focus
My area of specialization is in maternal/perinatal mental health and I have advanced training in the treatment of pregnancy and postpartum-related depression, anxiety, intrusive thoughts, and adjustment problems.
My clients also include non-pregnant-and-postpartum individuals who are experiencing anxiety and/or depression, adjustment issues, relationship strain, grief and loss, trauma, and the impact of chronic illness or medical issues.
If you aren’t sure if your specific concerns fall into my experience area, let’s talk and discuss it together!
Session fees are $90 for each 45-50 minute session and are payable by cash, check, or credit card. Insurance is not accepted for counseling sessions at this time, though I can accept HSA cards.
Weekly or biweekly sessions are generally recommended, as sessions spaced out more than this may not bring you the results you hope for.
My office is located in Gilbert, Arizona and in addition to in-person appointments, I offer video sessions via a secure telehealth platform for clients who are also located in Arizona.
